GREENVILLE, Ill. -- The women's basketball team ran past Hannibal-La Grange on Monday in their first game after Thanksgiving as they passed the century mark in a 102-56 win.

The Panthers led 33-12 after the first period and extended their lead thereafter as they took a 56-27 lead to halftime.

The third quarter was all Greenville as they ended the stanza with an 87-40 advantage.

Maria Reinhard paced the Panther scoring effort for the second straight game with 19 points on six field goals, including five three pointers, and a perfect 2-for-2 mark at the free throw line.  Prior to the last two games, Reinhard reached double figures in points just once in her Greenville career.

Meredith Crosier was second in the scoring column with 14 points, and Kelly Lenz and Wesley Woodard each added 13 points.  Morgan St. James posted a 12-point night, and Jantzen Michael capped the group of women reaching double figures with 10 points.

Michael led the Greenville defense with four steals, and St. James collected seven rebounds.

The Panthers shot 53.1 percent from the floor, including a sizzling 13-of-20 effort from behind the three point line.  They were even better at the free throw line, making 21-of-22 charity tosses to end at 95.5 percent.

The Panthers (3-1) travel to Eureka to face the defending conference champion on Wednesday at 6 p.m.
